Being Brooke by Emma Hart
My name is Brooke Barker…
And I’m a freaking disaster.
No, seriously. I’m a college drop-out working a dead-end job, my best friend Carly’s dog gets more action than I do, and I have more bad dates in my diary than there are movie remakes.
Not to mention I’m completely and utterly in love with Cain Elliott.
The problem? He’s in a relationship. With a girl who’s so plastic she makes Barbie cry herself to sleep with jealousy.
The second problem? He’s my best friend.
My shut-up-and-put-on-Harry-Potter, yes-this-is-your-shirt, help-I-have-no-power, crap-I’m-out-of-tampons, kinda best friend.
And that’s all he can be, right?
Brooke is loud, brash, and snarky. I should have loved her. Instead I was annoyed. I could not understand why she seem so intent on sabotaging the relationship.
Brooke’s life tip number one is “don’t fall for your best friend”. It is too bad that she already did that. She could have embraced it, but she was so sure they would not succeed as a couple. As a result, she was all over the place and it seem to me that she was being extremely weird.
Cain was cute but super clueless. I cannot see how it was possible for him to be that dense. Everyone else seems to know Brooke was madly in love with him while he obliviously is dating someone else. They wonder how long Brooke will carry a torch for him. When he finally finds out that Brooke wants more, I thought he was extremely patient to deal with all of her antics.
The supporting characters made this book for me.
TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
BORROW. I loved Cain in a he-is-too-cute kind of way. Brooke was too annoying for me.
